Telogen Effluvium is a temporary form of hair loss that typically occurs after a person has gone through a traumatic or stressful life event. Most often, it happens several months after the event has taken place. While Telogen Effluvium is mainly caused by stress, it can also be caused by poor diet, sudden weight loss, Menopause, and other underlying health conditions. It is considered to be the second most common cause of hair loss, second to Androgenetic Alopecia and it typically is reversible.
In women, Androgenetic Alopecia is a form of chronic Telogen Effluvium.
However, in men, Telogen Effluvium and Androgenetic Alopecia show different patterns of balding which differentiates themselves from one another.
In men, Telogen Effluvium results in a thinning of hair all over the head. The hair loss is diffused all over the scalp, rather than being in a set pattern. Men that have Androgenetic Alopecia often lose their hair at the top of their head and their front hairline recedes in a "M" shape.
Hair loss is the main symptom of Telogen Effluvium. Some people notice more hair loss when they wash their hair or when they brush their hair.
On average a person sheds 50 to 100 strands of hair per day. When you are experiencing Telogen Effluvium you will notice significantly more, closer to 300 strands per day.
No, Telogen Effluvium does not cause baldness. While it does cause hair loss and hair thinning overall or in patches, it does not cause baldness all over the scalp.
To diagnose Telogen Effluvium you must visit your doctor. They will review your medical history as well as your scalp and hair to diagnose the cause of your hair loss.
Without treatment, Telogen Effluvium will likely resolve itself within several months. The typical timeframe for Telogen Effluvium is approximately 3 to 6 months. Following that, a persons hair typically resumes their normal hair growth rate.
